Re: ADS-B question

when squawking 7700 (mayday), 7600 (radio failure) or 7500 (unlawful interference), it should appear in "RED" . The idea behind this is to warm the pilot to check the he/she has the correct SSR code selected. As this without going into certain detail's has various effect especially at ATC and ATCC e...

Re: SR-91 Aurora

For those of you who do not believe in the Aurora (or what ever you like to call it). I said the evidence is out there if you look, that's besides the comment made in Congress about these machines.

Re: SR-91 Aurora
